You are just a few simple steps away from representation.
Thank you for looking at our website. At The Croft Law Ofﬁce we carefully review each intake. We cannot give any legal advice over the phone or e-mail. We need 10 to 14 days after receiving your information to review the materials you have submitted. An incomplete packet will cause a delay. You will be contacted by our ofﬁce regarding the missing information and asked to provide it. When we receive the missing information we will need additional time to review it, so it is to your beneﬁt to provide all the requested information in the beginning. Files must be mailed or hand delivered. We cannot accept scanned, faxed, or e-mailed ﬁles.
Now, please review the following information before starting your paperwork.
This ofﬁce only gets involved in claims in which there has been a denial or controversion of beneﬁts.
We do not handle:
- Federal workers' compensation cases;
- Long Shore and Harbor Workers' cases;
- Workers compensation cases where the person wasn't injured in the State of Alaska;
- Cases where the worker is already represented by legal counsel;
- Injuries involving any Alaska school district; and
- Injuries involving the Municipality of Anchorage
To determine if we can help you, we need to work together.
You must provide the following:
- Completed intake forms.
- $25 processing fee
- Copy of your Alaska Workers' Compensation Board ﬁle. You can call Anchorage at 907-269-4980, Fairbanks at 907-451-2889, or Juneau at 907-465-2790.
- Insurance company ﬁle - Generally the information that is in the Board ﬁle is also contained in the insurance company ﬁle and a copy can sometimes be obtained much quicker by contacting your workers' compensation insurance carrier.
Your file MUST include copies of:
- Compensation reports
- Controversion notices
- Reemployment information
- Recorded statements
- Report of Injury form, and
- All medicals even if prior to the date of injury but to the same body part. You will need to contact your medical providers to obtain copies of your records. If the insurer had you evaluated by their doctor you must submit a copy of the report.
NOTE: Please do not submit your ﬁle in a binder, sheet protectors, or still in envelopes. Please take a moment to remove duplicate paperwork. We cannot accept ﬁlms (X-Ray, MRI).
Now we just need signed and dated copies of the following two documents. 1) The intake information letter; and 2) The fully completed intake form. For your convenience, we have automated the intake form (optional) for you to securely complete online; or you may download the forms, ﬁll out, and deliver them to our ofﬁce.
UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT ACCEPT FILES SENT VIA EMAIL.
WE MUST HAVE EITHER THE ORIGINAL PAPER FILE COMPLETED AND TURNED IN WITH SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS OR THE ELECTRONIC PACKET COMPLETED THROUGH OUR SECURE ONLINE SERVER. ADDITIONALLY, WE ARE UNABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CLAIM UNTIL WE HAVE A FILE IN OUR OFFICE.
The information on this website is general information and does not apply to every single injured worker. This is not intended to answer every question, but hopefully help you. There are speciﬁc statute of limitations and you should contact the Board at 907-269-4980 for more speciﬁc information regarding the details of your claim. This is not legal advice and should not be used to make any decisions about your case or any actual case.
Please be aware that at this time the Croft Law Ofﬁce does not represent you and will take no action on your behalf.
THE CROFT LAW OFFICE DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU UNTIL WE HAVE FILED AN ENTRY OF APPEARANCE.
